As the pipeline for female leaders widens across board, there is a correlated need to develop their capacity for enhanced business results and bigger organizational contribution. We take cognizance of the fact that women have made significant gains in education especially higher education and continue to make better inroads into managerial as well as leadership positions including the boards. While there is still need to continue the push for enhanced gender diversity especially at higher levels of management and boards, of equal importance is to ensure that women have the capacity to grow and sustain their influence as leaders in a way that positively impacts business results into the future.
The Kenya Institute of Management Annual Women in Leadership Conference provides a platform for accelerated learning providing a platform for experience and knowledge sharing among women leaders as well as exposure through highly experienced speakers who not only provide the much needed inspiration on what is possible but also passionately share their leadership success stories.
